So What Happens If We Bomb Iran?

I mean, really? What's the worst that could happen?

Concerned over the "unintended consequences" of a military strike by Israel on Iran, US military chief Admiral Michael Mullen has asked Tel Aviv to exercise restraint and vowed to thwart Tehran's nuclear programme.

Reiterating that "Iran must not acquire nuclear capability," Mullen after his arrival in Israel on Sunday said that if a regional confrontation were to break out following a strike on Tehran, it "will be a big, big, big problem for all of us, and I worry a great deal about the unintended consequences of a strike".

Asked about the red lines the US administration has set for Iran's nuclear programme, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff refused to offer a detailed response, but said, "President Barack Obama was very clear that from a policy standpoint, Iran cannot have nuclear weapons."
